ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Dr Maleeha Lodhi Sunday said India had to answer to the world for all its atrocities and crimes, including inhumane use of bullets and pellets against the innocent Kashmiri people in the occupied valley.

Kashmir Issue: ‘India imposing war on Pakistan’ 

She said it was impossible for India to diplomatically isolate Pakistan as its attempts in that regard were a doomed ploy to divert world attention from a very serious situation in Kashmir.

"Such attempts were made in the past as well but failed and
now, the international attention on the gross human rights violations in the Indian-occupied Kashmir (IoK) valley had also put New Delhi on the defensive," she maintained in response to queries in a private news channel programme.

Maleeha said Pakistan wanted a peaceful settlement of all
issues with its neighbour, but it should not go unnoticed which country adopted a belligerent posture and beating war drums.

Such gross human rights violations and war rhetoric were further exposing Indian government globally putting it on tenterhooks, she opined.

Dr Maleeha, to another question, replied that equating
Balochistan with the IoK by the Indian government manifested its extreme sense of frustration.

“India is succumbing to its own propaganda,” she said, adding the
Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) would soon send a fact finding mission to the IoK.

Terming two US lawmakers’ bill against Islamabad ‘frivolous
one’, Pakistan’s representative said it was impossible to get support in the Congress.

She said the timing of the resolution and Uri attack should
be noted as they were part of a design to divert attention from the grave situation in the IoK.
